Top 10 Things to Buy at Dollarama NOW

I love a good deal, so I regularly frequent my local dollar store to buy things for my home. Recently, I found some fantastic items at Dollarama, and I thought I share my top ten with you today. Here they are... in no particular order.

1) Cleaning products - I love buying cleaning products at the dollar store, and this week I found these wipes at a great price. Each container contains 75 wipes... and I got all four containers for only $4. Great, right?!?

2) Toys - My kids are getting a little old for dollar store toys, but they still love these fun snow items I found. The snow ball maker and snow brick makers are perfect for winter. I love the brick makers for building forts. So much fun!

3) Storage bins - Storage bins are great for organizing, but they can be really pricey. However, the dollar store has tons of fantastic options. I like these medium-sized bins with lids. They hold lots of items, they fit on a book shelf, and they stack really well.

4) Wooden decor items - The dollar store has tons of wooden decor items that can be used "as is" or can be used to DIY something even better. These two wooden items caught my eye this week, and I can't wait to turn them into something great!

5) Glass containers - Dollar store glass containers and jars are perfect for a bunch of uses. I love this pretty jar with a great seal. I'm going to use it for storing my homemade chocolate mix. I also love gettting mason jars at the dollar store for storing my pantry pancake mix. The possibilities are endless!

6) Hooks - These brand name hooks are inexpensive and have a bunch of uses. They can stick to walls or to furniture, and they are great for organizing small spaces. 

7) Picture frames - Dollar store picture frames are awesome. They are great for displaying photos, but they are fun to use for DIYing too. For example, I have used recently used dollar store frames to create a decorative tray and a festive wreath. They have tons of options, but I am loving this square one I purchased yesterday.

8) Wreath forms - Craft supplies can be costly, but the dollar stores has a variety of inexpensive options right now. I'm currently loving these wire frames -- especially the 18" one. I just used one to make a "winter" wreath for my front door, and it turned out fantastic! You can check it out here.

9) Organizers - It's always hard to organize the odds and ends that end up sitting on counters or being crammed into drawers, but the dollar store has many inexpensive items that can help. Look in the "bin" section, but also check out the hardware and craft supply sections. I recently purchased this little craft organizer to organize my earrings, and it's perfect. Think about the items you need to organize, and then check out the dollar store for a system that will work for you.

10) Craft supplies - I love seasonal crafting, and the dollar store always has a bunch of wonderful supplies at fantastic prices. But remember -- don't limit yourself to the "craft supply" aisle. The wedding section, hardware section, and candy aisle have fun options too. Check out some of my favourite Valentine's Day crafting supplies below. I'll be sharing the fun projects I use them for very soon!

  1. I live here in NS and LOVE Dollarama.
    For Christmas I bought both my kiddos some of the shrink art kits (I think $1.25/each). They absolutely loved doing these - colouring the pictures and then baking them for 5 minutes. The sticker art kits are great too.
    Ironically enough, Dollarama is also a great place to buy kids socks. I looked far and wide (Walmart, Amazon, Superstore) for cotton socks for my son and the only place I could find them was at Dollarama (where they were inexpensive to boot).

    1. Great tips! I bought the shrink art paper, but I haven't tried it yet. Glad to hear the positive review. Now I'm excited to give them a try.
